Open Quote We are military and all of my children were able to attend one school together. I loved having them all in one place. The teachers were excellent with answering any questions I ever had. I would recommend PES to incoming families. (Vernon Parish is an open school district, you just have to drive students outside of busing zone). Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
